* ''Film/TheAmazingSpiderMan2'' had Maxwell Dillon going into this when Spider-Man tries to talk him down but forgets his name (to be fair he wasn't glowing with blue electric energy in their second encounter).

* ''Film/ComicBookTheMovie'' is a rare case of dealing with this from ''both'' sides - the star of the film is a fan who feels overly slighted by an upcoming film based on his comic book hero and his war with a studio that doesn't give a crap. It leans more towards the fandom view in the end, but takes more than a few shots at them. As the film was a project by comic geek and nerd icon MarkHamill, much of the fandom humor was also [[SelfDeprecation self-deprecating]].

* [[Music/AllShallPerish Ben Orum]] told an interviewer about how his opinion of Malevolent Creation (which he was a big fan of) was ruined by his first encounter with Phil Fasciana, who responded to Orum's adulatory greeting by asking him if he had any cocaine, then proceeding to verbally abuse Orum and call All Shall Perish a "nigger band" when Orum told him that he didn't have any.

** Happens in the FramingDevice of "The Sponge Who Could Fly", when Patchy finds out the lost episode he was searching for was just a bunch of walk cycles. In a rage, he gets rid of all of his [=SpongeBob=] stuff and runs away, slamming the door. Upon Potty the Parrot saying there's more on the tape, Patchy opens the door, says "really?", closes it again, and then restores his collection by rewinding the footage.

* In ''Film/GalaxyQuest'', Tim Allen's character, the washed up star of a long-canceled Sci-Fi show, snaps at a fan at a convention for bugging him with technical questions about the show's fictional universe. This may be a ShoutOut to similar incidents that happened to cast members of the original ''Series/{{Star Trek|The Original Series}}'' series by similarly overzealous fans.
** And this happened after Tim Allen's character heard three people in the restroom talk about how ridiculous the show and it's cast was.
** Its spiritual predecessor ''Film/ThreeAmigos'' has a somewhat darker take on the trope. The German had been a fan of Ned Neiderlander's work since his youth, and practiced religiously to mimic Ned's famous quick-draw. He was devastated to learn about film special effects and assumed that Ned cheated with trick photography, so The German challenged him to a quick-draw duel to the death to prove that his former idol was just a fraud. [[spoiler: The German was wrong.]]
